Samsung is said to be announcing a new and unique smartwatch soon. We also have a couple fun videos for your enjoyment.
We know Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy Note 4 at IFA, but new reports indicate they will have more to show in Berlin. Industry sources claim the Korean manufacturer will be releasing a standalone smartwatch called the Samsung Gear Solo.
The unit is said to come with its very own SIM technology, allowing it to work without being tethered to a smartphone. Those who prefer the traditional model will also be able to use it as a smartphone accessory. It’s said the device won;t support 4G LTE, though – only 3G networks will be compatible.
Opinion: I am not a fan of these standalone devices, but they could be a good solution for those with active lifestyles. Users wouldn’t be forced to take their phones for runs, for example. The Gear Solo would be sufficient.
Chinese clones can sometimes fool even the keenest eye, but it all changes after you spend a little bit of time using the device. Such is the case for the latest iPhone 6 clone, which was released much before the real iPhone 6.
YouTuber Jonathan Morrison took this phone to the streets of Hollywood and see how many walkers who could fool into thinking this was an iPhone 6. Not only that, but he wanted them to accept the device was faster (it wasn’t), and made up a bunch of unbelievable facts.
Opinion: As a trained archer, I was a bit excited to hear his statement about the arrow-resistant screen. Am I sensing a fun video to come by yours truly?
What is it that you look for in a smartphone? A nice, large display? Maybe you want amazing battery life. These are all features Huawei always touts when talking about their new Ascend Mate 2, a device that costs under $300, unlocked and off-contract.
The video below shows a Huawei representative displaying the device’s awesome features to the public. And yes, this does include the phone’s unique ability to charge other smartphones.
Opinion: Huawei is working hard to enter the US market, and we know they have good devices to show for. This market is just so hard to penetrate, though. People are often set on the brands they already know.
